Holmen Husky Lodge provides fun dogsledding adventures to all sorts of people and groups. They also have unique and exciting overnight accommodation at their husky farm – this tour provides a special opportunity for a small group from the ship to have a closer encounter with the “husky way of life”!

Guests transfer by bus (no guide) to Holmen Husky Lodge, just outside of Alta. They will change clothes if needed to match the weather, and then head out on a ride with the dogs (either 2x2, or in an 8-passenger wagon driven by a guide). The ride will be on sleds if there is still deep snow, or on sturdy 4-wheeled carts after the snow has melted.

After the ride, guests will relax, have a delicious dinner in the common dining room at the farm. They can take a dip in the Jacuzzi or step into the sauna, or just relax in the comfortable furniture at the farm. At bedtime, they will move to their own special tepee-style tent that comes complete with a queen-sized bed, blankets and a woodstove in case the nights are cold. There is a floor-to-ceiling window to look out to the night sky, and during the summer months the window is blocked so sleepers will be sheltered from the midnight sun. The next day, guests will enjoy breakfast before returning to the ship.
